5.7 Billions and Border Wall

IBM / Financetricia
Jan 10

Trump has shutdown the gov't and has demanded 5.7B to build a wall at our southern border. Democrats have denied the money.
Putting all that aside, even if Trump gets 5.7B - is it realistic to think he can build the complete wall in that amount? It's too small a number to cover the entire border with Mexico.

    Liberals needed more than 12 billion to build 5 miles of light rail track in Seattle, above ground. Let that shit sink in

      The only way it adds to the "GDP of the region" is through high-paying union jobs. The wall will be no different in that regard.

      Move people off the roads to allow for slightly faster movement of trucks and people to spend less time sitting in their cars. People could also be working when they are just a passenger.

      Don’t know much about this train, do you? It goes from Sacramento to Bakersfield when you can take a Southwest flight for $49. It’s useless.

      $120B to add a few jobs and move 0.001% of traffic off the roads. Liberalism is a mental disease.

      @ivanka oh look making shit up, where is that .0001% from, got data to back that shit up?

      @jodpi You don't know much about Seattle then and our 50s highway design and how we haven't expanded since. Also that the urban environment where this is being built is vastly different from bumfu.ck farmland middle of nowhere Sacramento to Bakersfield.

      Familiar with both as I’ve lived in both. Water is difficult geography to deal with. Not sure of your point tho - you are pro govt lighting money on fire or con?

      So your argument is, it's okay for Trump to burn money because others are doing the same? Sounds like you're agreeing that building a wall is burning money.

      I’m saying siphon off 4% of a useless train to build a wall that keeps Jim Acosta safe.

    A wall would not stop anything. Only wasting taxpayers’ money.

      All...5 of them?

      Rank these domestic crises by order of impact...
      Opioids
      Mass shootings
      Fires and floods
      Obesity
      Illegal alien mass slayings

      Brainwashed liberal puts mass shootings in 2nd place?
      What about suicide?
      What about people who defended their lives with guns (it's over 50k/year)? Brainwashed POS. .

      You just proved my point, thank you very much Triggered Trumpie!

      The fact that we have way more domestic problems to address means we shouldn’t be spending $5B on a pointless, useless, wasteful wall.

      If you don’t agree, you’re a moron.

      I'm too smart to fall for this bullshit argument. Why don't you use your cucks' 120 billion you spend on your shitty train to solve these important problems? Inconsistent liberal POS...

    I thought Mexico will pay for wall. I miss those days.

      I have a better idea: make liberals pay for the wall since they love taxes

      In all fairness liberals did offer to pay for increased border security. Too bad trump threw a tantrum like an inconsolable child

    That's not for the entire wall. That's for high priority areas Border Patrol has specifically requested.

    The wall is nothing but a monument for Trumps ego. I can’t believe anyone would even entertain the idea. When he first said it people swore he was either joking or trolling, that he didn’t really mean that. Now they want to spend 5.7b on it? On a stupid wall that he promised Mexico would pay for? Lmfao

    No. Entire wall will cost approx 30B dollars.

      I had read the 5.7 bil will only cover 200 miles. The border is 2000 miles. And we already have some 600-700 miles of fencing. Dunno if we were going to replace that fencing too
